Which Wheels!!!

In the market for some new wheels for the E90 now and always had my eye on the BBS LM (could only afford reps mind) but they look a ball to clean and i hate cleaning the MV3s as it is!

Looks perfection to me!!




CSL style i like too!


So need some more ideas of a good wheel for the E90? Style 313 looks nice too, although maybe better suited to the coupe.



The 5 spoke F10 M5 wheels was also another choice, but to me from some angles on certain cars i dont like it!!





Please help :-)

Sounds like you've decided already. The BBS wheels (or reps) do look nice!
A decent wheel brush and a good non acidic wheel cleaner and cleaning them will not be that difficult once you stay on top of it. Failing that get some 5 spoke wheels...dead easy to clean.

You seem to be having the same issue as me.

I'm torn between csl style, 313's or getting my hands on a set of decent undamaged mv4's.

I'm leaning towards mv4's at the minute, but the csl style look immense on the e90.

Not much help am I?!

Best I have seen for e90/e91 are the alufelgen cs7 in gunmetal

Best for e92 are style 230 or the 5 spoke you posted that come on the newer coupes

LOL, this thread isn't exactly helping you OP, everyone has their own preference. Me personally, I can't do CSL, too overplayed now, but that's me. You may have another opinion so stick wtih what you like and be proud!

danny B!!!!!


id say F10 M5 wheels! just because its different! LM's have been around for so long now and all the V dubs, old BM's have them!

the CSL seems to be everyones first choice...

so why not try something a little different and set the new trend

I recently got CSL reps and just waiting on the weather to put them on. Turning into a bit of a classic modded look but I like it!

Never liked BBS.
I'd follow what Sumil P5MUL said.

You should also consider VMR.

See few wheels here.

Go different....

These Vossen reps look great: http://www.cmwheels.com/index.php?ro...product_id=680

Also these could work: http://www.cmwheels.com/index.php?ro...product_id=673

If you want to play it safer the M359 wheels look great on an E90.

Style 313 (or in the case of the photo below Alzor 730s) are one of my favorite wheels on our 335.
